Why Did This Landing Go Wrong?
This time, it's a runway overshoot on St. Barthélemy's notoriously short runway 10/28. Here is a analysis on what went wrong. St. Bart's is short, all right, but really not that different from a hundred other runways cluttered up with trees, towers, and close-in terrain. This is a stark, metal-bending lesson in airspeed control.

There must be a good reason why they don't approach from the east. Anyone know?  ▲

"There must be a good reason why they don't approach from the east. Anyone know?"

Just a guess, but which option would you prefer...skidding into a hillside or a nice sandy beach?
Looking at it you do not see any tire marks from landing at the beach side coming in over the water.
(really though...they get bonus points for knocking over scooters!)

Airport gets a liability discount because there is no fire if they go in the bay, landing the other way they crash going up hill and burn and thus require a phone call to the local fire department

Prevailing winds for the island are easterly all year long, NE'ly summer, SE'ly winter. so landings would be downwind with 10-15 knots of tailwind.

wind direction a major factor on prop planes, could have been the reason.
I remember when sex was safe and Heli's where dangerous.

There's a windsock on the hill in one of the frames. They are approaching into the wind.If you can't learn to do it well, learn to enjoy doing it badly.

It's a factor for any airplane... prop, jet and peddal power.

'Hot'? yes he was.

High? no... He was above the prefered 'glideslope', but on the glidepath.

Regarding 'high', I fear you may've misconstrued the slant of my vernacular.

In reality, I have nothing to fear but fear itself -- and misconstrued vernaculars.
